Great forum. Glad I found it before I purchase. Today I spoke to a saleman at a dealership in New England. During my q&a about a 2004 (with f1) 28k miles he said that all Maserati's will puff a small amount of blue smoke at start up if the car sits for a few days. Is that true. And is 40k in line for a 2004? The car in question is not the dealers but someone that get's the service work done there. I gave him the vin and he knew both the owner and car. ( Nice things to say about both) But when I heard about blue smoke I knew it was time to bring in the real pro's, The people that own them. Thanks for any help.
